Ok, sn9 on IRC did some digging through the source files for the 
"official" drivers and some other playing about and apparently the board 
consists of the following chips:
Cypress FX2, WM8739, Conexant CX2584x, Xceive XC3028 and Zarlink MT352.

I'm not sure if that helps anyone but I thought I'd post it.
